The Get Up Kids | Mercy Lounge | Nashville, TN

The Get Up Kids wound down their recent tour with a stop in Nashville, TN. With support from Ageist and Racquet Club, The Get Up Kids drew a large crowd which was impressive because Smashing Pumpkins were performing in Nashville on the same night. Mercy Lounge is certainly a small venue for an established band to play, making the show an intimate experience for everyone there as it was an up close and personal performance.

Jimmy Eat World | The Ryman Auditorium | Nashville, TN

If you know anything about the city of Nashville, you’re well aware that The Ryman Auditorium has been the home of more high profile country artists than you can count dating back to the '60's. When Jimmy Eat World were announced to be playing at The Ryman, it was a no brainer that we needed to be there to cover it. It was a wonderful added bonus that Microwave and The Hotelier were brought along to share the night.

Vance Joy | Ascend Amphitheater | Nashville, TN

Ascend Amphitheater, Nashville's go-to spring and summer concert spot, is perfect for a relaxing night of fresh air, live music, and a beautiful view. Behind the stage, you can catch a glimpse of Nashville's modest skyline. In the opposite direction, you have the glowing lights of the Pedestrian Bridge, a place where many gather to watch concerts from afar for free. Vance Joy performed at Ascend on May 10 with direct support from the up and coming group Lovelytheband while on his Nation of Two World Tour.

Makeout | The Abbey | Orlando, FL

Makeout, formerly known as Trophy Wives, are making a name for themselves while also bringing old and new fans with them. Opening last night for Icon For Hire, the band proved they could put on just as big of a show as a headlining act. Although most in the crowd were there to see the main act, Makeout definitely owned the stage. Pairing their never ending energy and unapologetically real lyrics, the band truly gave the show their all.

Koo Koo Kanga Roo | MC Lars | Rocketown | Nashville, TN

 MC Lars and Koo Koo Kanga Roo recently performed in Nashville, and we were there to capture it! Rocketown has three separate stage areas (I'm using that term loosely as one of the areas does not in fact have a stage, and instead just has a floor space for the band to use), and this show took place in The White Building, which has the smaller of the two actual stages. It was the perfect venue for this tour!
